IHG Rewards Club has a new promotion for double points for ONE midweek stay at participating properties in Europe between Jun 17 and August 31, 2013, that is booked by July 31.

You need to register for this promotion on IHG’s website here or using promotion code 8922 at https://www.ihg.com/priorityclub/rewards/us/en/offers/promoreg/. Remember to check the participating properties before your stay here.

Edit: IHG Has removed the required of requiring to book the Double Points Rate Category-rate from the terms and conditions. It is enough that you register for this promotion and have a midweek stay at any of the participating properties to get the double points.

The terms and conditions of this offer are contradictory. The fact that you need to register for this promotion would indicate that there is no need to book a specific rate in order to get the bonus points.

There is, however, the following line on the terms and conditions:

and has to be booked on the Double Points Rate Category

I checked three properties that are on the participating properties list that didn’t have a “double points rate” loaded.

Conclusion

I am not a huge fan on promotion that requires you to book a specific often inflated rate to be eligible for bonus points. The registration for this offer and requirement to book a special rate are contracting each other.

Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:

Must be a Priority Club® Rewards member or enroll prior to stay, and must register member number in advance to participate in this promotion. Only available at participating InterContinental Hotels Group Hotels (InterContinental Hotels and Resorts®, Crowne Plaza®, Hotel Indigo®, Holiday Inn®, Holiday Inn Express®, ) in Europe. Double points will be awarded for your first Qualifying Stay only during the Promotional Period. A Stay is defined as one night or consecutive nights at the same hotel, regardless of frequency of check-in/check-out and has to be booked on the Double Points Rate Category. It may take up to 4 weeks from the date of stay for bonus points to be added to the member’s account. Offer valid until the 31st July 2013 for stays from the 17th June to 31st August 2013. Rates are limited and subject to availability. Offer valid on new bookings only, not applicable to groups and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offers or special promotions. Only one member per room will be awarded the applicable bonus points or miles. Subject to standard Priority Club program terms and conditions.

    just by curiosity:

    how come that this mention is in the T&C:

    “Offer valid on new bookings only, not applicable to groups and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offers or special promotions”

    but it seems that promo points can still be combined ?

    • You can always combine promotions. BTW there might be a geographical limitation for the account for this promo. My account that is not based inn Europe couldn’t register for this one.

        i see

        so there are promos for US-residents only and others for Europeans

        • There are promos that may require your IHG Rewards Club account address to be in certain region.

            Good answer! Yes, it would not allow me to register. My address is in the U.S.

          • You can always temporarily “emigrate” your address to another country where the promo applies.

    Hmmm… it doesn’t mention that specific rate for me when checking the T&C. I have a booking for Hotel Indigo next week in Barcelona. I will rebook it now after I have signed up for the promo and we’ll see what happens. It is listed as a hotel part of the promo and it does not have any special rates as far as I can see.

    • Yeah. They have fixed the terms and conditions of this offer. I actually emailed my contact at the IHG and inquired about this inconsistency.

      I have a video of a suite that I had at the Indigo Barcelona on YouTube.com/LoyaltyLobby and will likely do a write up about it sometime in the future.

        Doh! Just saw that it starts on June 17, which is not next week. 🙂 Well, maybe I will get a double on my 10 night stay in IC Shanghai Expo in July then… a whopping 4.000 points then 😉

        Was that an upgrade or what room did you book? I didn’t see any suites available. I have booked “KING OR TWIN BD SUPERIOR CITY VIEW NOSMK”.

        • That was a upgrade based on the PC PLT status. It did show online on the day of arrival. The layout of the suite was weird and you need bags to keep those very heavy doors between rooms open.
